We decided to brave the heat, walk down to the ball park and watch the rubber game
of the interleague series between the Reds and the Twins this afternoon...
They had a new scoreboard game between innings, Press Your Luck!
Mr. Reds race...
Joey Votto put the Reds in the lead with a two-run blast in the eighth to make it 3-2!
And that means...
Aroldis Chapman versus Joe Mauer...
And Mauer would win this battle with a double after fouling off at least 10 pitches.
The next Twin took Chapman deep to give the Twins a 4-3 lead that they wouldn't give
back. I felt so bad for Aroldis. He just stood there with hands on this knees, staring at
his shoes. It was the second straight save attempt he's blown. Back on Tuesday, the
same thing happened when the Indians took Aroldis yard in the ninth for a walk-off win
in the tenth inning. But all you can do is learn from your mistakes, and try to do better
next game. The Reds continue the home stand tomorrow as the Brewers come into
town for a three game set. And we'll be back at the ball park Tuesday night. :)
Win or lose, you just can't beat being at the ball park. Go Reds! :)
